Thanksgiving Day is the first United States holiday ever celebrated by presidential proclamation.
President George Washington proclaimed November 26, 1789 as Thanksgiving Day after Congress asked him to name a day of public thanksgiving and prayer for the time of prosperity, freedom and hope after the long war.
There were other dates before this when the colonists celebrated Thanksgiving. Let’s review our Thanksgiving knowledge and have fun, and if you would like to dress up, please feel free to do so and illustrate your personage. Be sure to bring your questions and answers: let’s make it a fun celebration.
Why did the turkey cross the road?
Why didn’t the turkey eat any supper?
We look forward to seeing you.
